1:30 pm
you know a few years ago we were just living to be 50, 60 years old. we have to accommodate and rethink some of our prejudices and perceptions. he died at the playboy mansion in la, surrounded by friends, the self—styled godfather of the sexual revolution. hugh hefner who has died aged 91. time for a look at the weather. here's phil avery. the day did not start in sparkling fashion to say the least across the eastern part of the british isles, wet and windy. the weather front was not your fault but it looked rather a can do that. the weather watchers as ever out there braving all the conditions. it was not doom and gloom everywhere, come further towards the west and the day has been sparkling. there you see the difference, the satellite picture tells the tale. we will not improve things much across the north—east of scotland. onto the afternoon we may
1:31 pm
just pull in some low cloud towards the far south west. with some sunshine temperatures into the teens oi’ sunshine temperatures into the teens or 20 or sunshine temperatures into the teens or20 or21. sunshine temperatures into the teens or 20 or 21. overnight we push the next set of weather fronts in across northern ireland and they become extensive northern ireland and they become exte ns ive a cross northern ireland and they become extensive across the western side of scotland, england and also to wales. the wind coming from the south so here we are, murky to start the day, watch out if you are up and down the m8, hill fog around and tricky driving conditions which also goes for across the pennines. wet from the word go across greater part of wales down into the south—west, some of it heavy, that bit further to the east. the weather front does have something about it to move that little bit further towards the east through the course of today, brighter skies into northern ireland and they become more extensive across a good part of scotland and wales into the south—west of england, wet conditions across
1:32 pm
scotland, a peppering of showers, slightly fresher feel than today perhaps. on into saturday which sta rts perhaps. on into saturday which starts well enough, rain into the western side of scotland, another finger of rain into northern ireland, the south—west of england to finish off the afternoon, generally speaking the further east you are the better your day will be. let me get into sunday, big area of low pressure dominating the scene, wet and windy. if you have heard about two harry hurricane‘s, it may put a squeeze into the isobars. the long and short of it is rain and gales, autumn fair across the british isles, disruption could be likely, we could keep a close eye on developments but if you have heard that about two
1:33 pm
hurricane‘s it's more like autumn here in the british isles. a reminder of our main story this lunchtime: ryanair has rya nair has been ryanair has been threatened with legal action for persistently misleading passengers about the rights. it follows the cancellation of thousands more flights affecting 400,000 travelers. that's it. so it's goodbye from me, and now on bbc one, let's join our news teams where you are. hello, you are watching bbc news. the time is 1:33pm. i'm olly foster at the bbc sports centre. england have started their own disciplinary procedures after ben stokes‘ arrest under suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after a brawl outside a bristol nightclub. a video has been acquired by the sun that appears to show the fight in the early hours of monday morning. we haven't independently verified the video, and just to warn you before we show it —
1:34 pm
it is graphic. it appears to show stokes repeatedly throwing punches towards two men. we know that one man needed to go to hospital for treatment with facial injuries. stokes also suffered a minor fracture in his hand on the night of the incident. stokes was named in the ashes squad yesterday and he has retained the vice—captaincy. our sports news correspondent, richard conway, has been at lord's this morning. in the light of this video we understand senior figures at the ecb have discussed the matter this morning. it could be that interim measures are brought against ben stokes later today, even that could be the possible time frame. as for the player himself, we understand he is said to be a fragile condition, aware of the magnitude of what is alleged to have happened, what
1:35 pm
appears to have happened, and has apologised to the ecb for that. for now he remains in that ashes squad. he retains the vice captaincy, but events he retains the vice captaincy, but eve nts d o he retains the vice captaincy, but events do seem to have something of a momentum. we will have to see what the ecb do in due course. this video perhaps changes things, perhaps from all sides of this story gareth fryer the player's side, and we'll have to see how events play out over the coming days and perhaps even in the coming days and perhaps even in the coming weeks. richard conway, our sports news correspondent. chris coleman has named his wales squad ahead of their final world cup qualifiers against georgia and the republic of ireland. they are second in the group by a point, which is where they need to finish to have any chance of reaching the play—offs arsenal's aaron ramsey is set to win his 50th cap for wales — he starred at last year's european championship when they reached the semifinals in their first appearance in the tournament. there have also been calls—up for uncapped sheffield united winger david brooks and preston goalkeeper chris maxwell. tiger woods says he may never play competitive golf again.
1:36 pm
the iii—time major winner had to pull out of his last tournament in february. he underwent back surgery for a fourth time in april and the 41—year—old hasn't played at a major for the past 2 years. i've been out of the game for a while. first things first, get myself organised, make sure the pain goes away. could you see a scenario where you would not come back to competitive golf? yeah, definitely. i don't know what my future holds for me. as i've told you guys, i'm hitting 60 yard shots. the crisis at british bobsleigh has worsened today, with the news of the departure of its governing body's chief executive, richard parker. this follows revelations of athletes' allegations of racism and bullying against coaches, the departure of both the performance director and the head coach, and a row over the axing of women's funding last week. parker will be replaced and with the
1:37 pm
resources that has freed up, as well as of the restructuring, british bobsleigh say they can now partially fund and women's team in their bid to qualify for the games, in february. you can find more intimation on the bbc sport website. that's bbc.co.uk/sport. i'll be back after 2pm. olly foster there. the eu's chief negotiator michel barnier says a ‘new dynamic‘ has been created in the brexit negotiations, following theresa may's speech in florence last week. mr barnier said progress had been made on the financial settlement and citizen's rights, but more work was needed. the brexit secretary david davis said they'd made ‘decisive steps forward', but admitted that there remains disagreement over the uk's final liabilities, along with the border in northern ireland. our political correspondent ben wright was watching the news conference, and asked both negotiators whether they had made what the eu
1:38 pm
deems to be ‘sufficient progress‘ to go on to discuss trade. david davis, your tone today is more optimistic, there‘s a warm atmosphere in here, but there are obviously big stumbling blocks, in particular, the rule of the ec] in enforcing citizens‘ rights and the massive issue of money, the european union clearly want commitments for more. do you honestly feel this is a proper negotiation, or are you simply trying to pass a series of tests the eu is setting you? and mr barnier, could you define more clearly for us please the phrase "sufficient progress"? it‘s very vague. couldn‘t it be argued that it is your very narrow interpretation of the negotiating mandate that is holding these talks back? sometimes the questions make me laugh! of course it‘s a proper negotiation. we‘re here every round with 100 officials, and take one example today, i mean,
1:39 pm
later on today we‘ll be publishing an updated table of progress on citizens‘ rights that shows the direct outcome of those negotiations. if you look at them you will see most of them are now green, as they term it. it‘s an agreement between us. most of them, all of them, help all or part of the 3 million european union citizens and thei million united kingdom citizens, or both, and so it‘s to their advantage. the same thing is true of northern ireland, where we made real progress. it‘s not been a one—way process at all. thanks to the prime minister‘s speech last week we have made tangible progress in other areas and i hope we‘ll see in future significant progress on the question of the implementation period over the coming due course, but of course, that‘s not a one—way process. translation: uk citizens decided to
1:40 pm
leave the european union. that was their sovereign decision. the united kingdom government confirmed that they wished to leave the customs union and the internal market. those are decisions which are heavy with consequences, they are serious decisions, and as david said earlier on, there are complicated consequences in all sorts of areas, human, social, legal, financial, economic, technical, so you shouldn‘t be surprised that these rounds, which are all useful, some of them have more stumbling blocks,
1:41 pm
some of them have disappointments and some of them take steps forward and some of them take steps forward and we‘ve had important clarifications this week, but you shouldn‘t be surprised that this ta kes shouldn‘t be surprised that this takes time, the necessary time. as far as takes time, the necessary time. as faras i‘m takes time, the necessary time. as far as i‘m concerned, i mean, remember this is not the usual kind of negotiation for the european commission. we don‘t have a text are directive to defend. either negotiator hearing the commission andi negotiator hearing the commission and i have the talk to 27 heads of government or states and the european parliament and myjob is simply to make sure that we find the ways and means for an orderly withdrawal that is an agreement, an agreement with the united kingdom at the point where they leave, which is much better than leaving without an agreement, and that we do it by protecting the interests of the 27 and that we make sure that the european taxpayer doesn‘t have to
1:42 pm
carry the burden of decisions taken by the citizens of the united kingdom. i‘m making sure that we preserve the integrity of the internal market and the non—negotiable integrity of the autonomy of decision—making amongst the 27 in deciding their own destiny. so once again, as david said, and as i have said myself, i think that it is positive that theresa may‘s speech made it possible to unblock the situation to some extent, and given new dynamic to the situation, but we are far from being the stage, and it will ta ke from being the stage, and it will take weeks or maybe even months, where we‘ll be able to say, yes, ok, there‘s been sufficient progress on there‘s been sufficient progress on the principles of this orderly withdrawal. michel barnier and thereafter brexit secretary, david davis, responding to ben wright‘s
1:43 pm
questions. police are calling for children in schools to be taught what to do in the event of a uk terror attack, and are also warning eyewitnesses to flee the scene, rather than trying to film atrocities on mobile phones. i‘ve trained in taekwondo for 16 years. the new video, aimed specifically at young people, features some famous faces, with a message that police hope is becoming familiar to the british public. do you know what i‘d do in a knife or gun terror attack? i'd run. hide. tell. this campaign has been launched against a backdrop of a wave of terror attacks, including the manchester arena bomb, where many young people were killed and injured. their message is to run if you can, hide if you can‘t, and then tell police about the threat as soon as it is safe to do so. after the parsons green attack on the tube in london, some people stopped to film a partially exploded device that was still on fire. police are taking this opportunity to remind everyone that their first priority is their own safety.
1:44 pm
they should move rapidly away from any danger. hello, you‘re through to the nspcc hotline. the nspcc is also involved in this campaign. they have been contacted by 300 young people worried about terrorism since april. police are hoping this new message will be taught in schools and colleges to all ii to i6—year—olds. remember, run. hide. tell. andy moore, bbc news. the top stories on bbc news. the european union‘s chief max —— brexit negotiator says the latest round of talks on britain‘s departure from the eu has made some progress but more work is needed. theresa may defends the free market, warning of the risk of a return to what she calls failed ideologies. ryanair has been threatened with legal action
1:45 pm
for persistently misleading passengers about their rights, following thousands of flight cancellations. with 18 months to go until the uk officially leaves the eu, bbc news is looking at the central aspects of brexit over the coming months, starting with travel and trade. let‘s go live to our business presenter susannah streeter, who‘s at the london gateway for us. hello, we ship side at the london gateway port and behind me, you can see a ship from south america, from the west coast of south america, that arrived this morning at 7am, and is now being unloaded. it certainly is a full, 9000 containers full of goods, which have come from countries like peru, for example. brexit has huge applications for the way the uk exports and imports goods. many businesses are concerned that potentially increasing tariffs and also losing a frictionless
1:46 pm
border could have big implications for its day—to—day operations. in a moment we‘re going to be talking to representative from the food and drink industry here in the uk about how brexit could affect that sector, but first, a more global look from southampton. the port of southampton handles around 14 million tonnes of cargo each year. and supports 15,000 jobs. the vast majority of business, that‘s goods coming in and going out, is trade with countries outside of the eu. that gives companies based here a unique perspective on brexit. we‘re not dealing with intra— eu trades, we‘re dealing with ships coming deep sea from the far east, the americas, india pakistan, so our trades here are not essentially european trades. so we are sheltered from those impacts. their confidence is borne out by a boom in another direction of travel. this is the uk‘s number one port for exports.
1:47 pm
and that, for the most part, means cars. nowhere in the country handles more vehicles. hundreds of thousands pass through here every year. over 95% of the units handled here are going outside the eu, so it's really an exciting time. really, there's nothing anticipated right now on the table where we see it's going to be a major impact for us, our markets, the markets that we are dealing with. but expansion elsewhere at the port tells a different story that‘s more vulnerable to brexit. i‘d like them to leave everything as it is. frictionless borders, the same tariff systems and free movement of goods. this customs warehouse sends goods to europe that for now enjoy free passage with no further duties paid. ijust can‘t see how you can end up in a system that would work if every single thing that was sent out of here had to be imported again into france. like elsewhere, there are unanswered questions about the potential for disruption and delays.
1:48 pm
but southampton‘s focus on export and its relationships outside of the eu means that for now, this port enjoys more certainty than most. these huge cranes are at work and loading the containers from this ship that has arrived from the west coast of south america. you can see the white containers on the ship. they are full of food and drink. it could be chilean wine or meat, for example. earlier today, we saw how many of those containers have to be opened and inspected at uk border control. of course, the uk as well will put lots of its exports in similar refrigerated containers on ships going right out around the world, selling uk products overseas.
1:49 pm
so what implications will brexit have on the way that the industry operates gritter mark lets chat to a representative of the food and drink federation from the uk. tell me what you want out of brexit negotiations. the sport can expand, there is capacity here. it can take on more eu goods and check them post—brexit. here. it can take on more eu goods and check them post-brexit. we have and check them post-brexit. we have a state—of—the—art facility and you can see the extraordinary speed, flex ability and competency with which they are handling containers and that‘s important but it‘s not the whole story. we need to know what are the rules and regulations, what are the rules and regulations, what are the computer systems underpinning trade, what kind of checks will be necessary. how often will that happen? we don‘t have the detail on that and that‘s what‘s making food and drink manufacturers very anxious. their goods are different to other goods that you
1:50 pm
get. they have to be kept at a certain temperature for a certain time period. that is crucial, isn‘t it? do you want a specific exemption for the industry? first of all we wa nt for the industry? first of all we want government to be completely aware of the differences. food and drink is the same as other manufactured products. short shelf lives, some of it very perishable. its susceptibility at the delays and friction is much higher than the many other products. we need government to understand that and understand that the consequences of getting this wrong for food and drink are much more serious than they offer other products. it is -- is it the transition period you are more concerned about, rather than the endgame, looking into the future, because the port authority here are telling me we do have the capacity, we are able to use our it systems to do different tariff checks on different types of goods all the same ship, even possibly the same container, so it could work for eu goods as well. they have clearly set up to do that but they don‘t
1:51 pm
know what checks there are going to have to do and that‘s the missing piece of the jigsaw at the moment. what we are saying is transition is very welcome, that we know transition is formally on the table, but we don‘t know what the rules will be on the of march 2019. that‘s getting unnervingly close. the many thanks. the london gateway port has a lot of capacity here and a lot of potential to expand, so if need be they could take in and check many more goods arriving on these ships. this is a deep earth port, so those mega ships from asia, they can both here and unload. there‘s a bright future here for this port, but they say there‘s a lot of complexities to pick in brexit process. susannah streeter, thank you. residents of the indonesian island of bali are preparing for news on whether and when its most sacred mountain will erupt — as indonesia‘s government has sent out a message to the world — that bali is still open for tourists. tens of thousands of people living
1:52 pm
near the slops of mount agung volcano have been moved from their homes. there has been an increase in volcanic activity this week with hundreds of tremors recorded. an exclusion zone of seven miles around the mountain has been set up. hywel griffith sent this update from bali life on the tourist beaches is continuing more or less as normal and that‘s exactly what the indonesian government is hoping for. it sent out a letter addressed to the people of the world, talking about the fact that bali is still open for business and even if there is an eruption they have contingency plans in place to send aircraft in different directions and have ferries which could take people off the island. some people we‘ve been speaking to the bahia say they wouldn‘t mind being marooned on bali foran wouldn‘t mind being marooned on bali for an extra couple of days. a different situation however for the 80,000 or more people who have been evacuated from their homes, taken out of the red zone, which surrounds mount agung. many of those coming to
1:53 pm
the end of the first week as evacuees. some have got a couple of bags full of clothes to keep them going. however, one centre we visited this morning, it became obvious that the women and children we re obvious that the women and children were there but some of the men were going back into the risky zone to attend to the animals. in some cases i guess their main sales of income. there‘s a bit of attention here in bali over how this is going to play out. the question really everyone wa nts a nswered out. the question really everyone wants answered is if and when an eruption will come. there‘s no a nswer to eruption will come. there‘s no answer to that, although the earthquakes continue coming, the seismic activity is still very, very frequent. an eruption could be minutes or hours, days, maybe even months away. hywel griffith in bali. the french government is advertising for a couple to live on an island off the brittany coast. the last couple spent ten years managing a
1:54 pm
farm there, but as they are moving on the solitary lifestyle is up for grabs. hugh schofield reports. for anyone to drop in on this family ta kes a for anyone to drop in on this family takes a journey by boat. the bbc? for ten years they‘ve lived at a farmhouse on this tiny island alone. their neighbours are their animals and their view in every direction is the sea. but the couple have decided to leave the island for the mainland. their children need to be near their school. it means the end ofan near their school. it means the end of an extraordinary experiment that works. translation: looking back ten years on maybe it was all a bit mad, but a good kind of mad. because we succeeded. we set up a functioning business and we created a family. it's business and we created a family. it‘s all been a beautiful adventure. the first challenge was making enough to live on. island potatoes
1:55 pm
command a big price, so they sell them via the internet. they offer rooms for holiday—makers and they started tapping into the growing international market for edible seaweed. the other challenge was environmental. doing all this while using only the island‘s resources in water and energy. translation: at the start we had no idea if we'd have the energy to run a freezer or clothes dryer, etc, but as it turns out we have all the appliances and we run them round the clock and it's fine. we even have an electric car, which we use just about every day, which proves that technology works. it's mid-september now. at the moment to let their sheep out of pasture so they roam over the whole of the island. it‘s the last time they‘ll be performing this annual task. next year another couple will have taken over. translation: when we leave, no
1:56 pm
question, i'll be in tears. it's ten years of our lives we've spent here so years of our lives we've spent here so of course it will be very hard to go. it's been such an adventure and so go. it's been such an adventure and so beautiful. every day, all you have to do isjust so beautiful. every day, all you have to do is just look around you. it's been an exceptional time. people lived here for millennia, but in modern times it was abandoned and now the search is on again for anotherfamily now the search is on again for another family prepared for the challenges and rewards of keeping alive this special spec of france. hugh schofield, bbc news. let‘s get the latest weather from phil avery, who has the details. i‘m on the balcony looking at glorious weather, a game through the front door here in central london, and it was like that elsewhere to
1:57 pm
start the day across some parts of the british isles, especially if you we re the british isles, especially if you were out through central and western parts, a glorious start of the day. no disguising the fact the sun came out further east and there had been some rain there and it‘s going to stick around i‘m afraid across the north—east of scotland, where it‘s a combination of wet and windy, especially up into the shetland isles. later on this afternoon we are going to bring some low cloud backin are going to bring some low cloud back in here, you see the speckling. that shadow moving back towards the channel islands, the isles of scilly and the far west of cornwall. that low cloud eventually produces some drizzle. it is as nothing compared to the pretty wet and windy fair getting into northern ireland. as we getting into northern ireland. as we get through the night it pushes its way ever further towards the east. not a cold night because of all that cloud and the wind coming in from the south and south—east. we start at 13-14. i'm the south and south—east. we start at 13—111. i‘m trying to take your mind off the fact it will be pretty miserable. a lot of surface spray, the trans—pennines miserable. a lot of surface spray, the tra ns—pennines not looking sparkling. northern ireland breaking
1:58 pm
out behind the weather front into something brighter on the dryer at that stage. the weather front breaking its way all over wales and the south—west. ahead a it in at about the cloud for that be some sharp bursts of rain dotted either side of the wash. if you have an interlude of dry weather don‘t start out without being prepared for some rain because you see is that front comes through towards the east there is no escape. out west, after the dryer interlude with sunshine coming through, we put a peppering of showers into things through the west of scotland, northern ireland, wales, into the south—west. 18—19 will stop we‘ve made it to the weekend. it starts off well enough. we start filling in the cloud and rain across western areas. the east is not such an issue on saturday but a massive book, massive uncertainty, we have a big area of low pressure on the way. the sort of thing you expect to see in late september or early october. you may have heard the chat about the remnants of hurricane is getting involved here. that kink there is all that‘s left
1:59 pm
of lee, which has been wandering around for a few weeks now. behind me, that‘s maria, or what was maria. what we are going to get, not hurricanes, but you will be involved in some very stormy weather as we get on through the latter part of saturday into sunday, first part of monday, and some pretty heavy pulses of rain. that‘s what you need to concentrate on. not so much the names, it will be pretty ropey to finish off the weekend. this is bbc news. the headlines at 2pm: the eu‘s lead negotiator says there‘s a new dynamic to brexit talks, but warns there‘s still work to be done. we managed to create clarity on some points, on others, however, more work remains to be done and we are not there yet. ryanair is threatened with legal action for misleading passengers about their rights — as thousands more flights are cancelled. the england cricketer ben stokes apologises, after video emerges,
